West Elwha Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Note: The campground suffered major ﬂood damage impacting the trailhead—check with ranger on the current status.
Follow what was once part of the old Olympic Hot Springs Trail, now truncated by the Olympic Hot Springs Road. This delightful trail follows the mighty Elwha River downstream along its west bank, away from roads and away from crowds. En route traverse ancient tree groves and a ﬂowering cliffside above the river.
Dogs are prohibited."
